Join the instrumentalist and choir of Grace Community Church in worship to the Lord in this excerpt from a live stream broadcast.
My God, I love Thee;
not because I hope for heav'n thereby,
Nor yet because who love Thee not
Must die eternally,
Thou, O my Jesus, Thou didst me
Upon the cross embrace;
For me didst bear the nails, the nails and spear,
And manifold disgrace.
Why, then why, O blessed Jesus Christ,
Should I not love Thee well?
Not for the hope of winning heav'n,
Or of escaping hell;
Not with the hope of gaining aught,
Not seeking a reward;
But as Thyself hast loved me,
O ever-loving Lord!
E'en so I love Thee, and will love,
And in Thy praise will sing;
Solely because Thou art my God,
And my Eternal King.
